I have been taking the 30 Day Shred challenge one
squat jump day at a time. After the first week, I lost 4 lbs and was really excited about it. I kept doing what I was doing, you know, riding the healthy train. On my final day of level 1 I jumped on the scale again. I had gained back 2 of the 4 lbs I lost. Dafaaaaaq? How is that even possible? Julian has been killing me. I have been eating clean.
So why? Why do I keep torturing myself if I don’t see the scale moving. Because I am fairly certain the pyramids weren’t constructed in a day. (Though if you watch the special on the aliens on the history channel, they might have been.) I know that eventually if I continue to work, something will give. I do see results when I look at my arms and they are less jiggly. I am starting to see definition in my abs again. I told myself that I would complete this damn challenge, and I will do it! Mama didn’t raise no quitter. If I give my best, and I don’t get the results that I want…I know that I at least tried. You can’t argue with that. Besides, I could do better on the weekends. You know, not drink beer AT ALL. Skip Mexican night. However, I do still want to enjoy some things and know that it comes at a price.
I am not in a competition with anyone but myself. I know I can be better. I will get there.
